Give the seed time

Nearly nine years ago to-the-date I had a Bible study (part of an ongoing series) with two friends. Once the last study concluded, concerning the topic of salvation, one of the friends replied, “It really is easy to understand, isn’t it?” This reply made me excited! And I expected a decision, of a positive nature, to be made in the near future. I had to wait longer than expected.

A couple of weeks ago I received a text from this friend expressing their desire to obey the Gospel. I was happy to help, to say the least. After a 20 minute study the seed that began to be planted nearly a decade ago had finally sprouted! Currently, this good and honest heart is making great progress in additional correspondence courses.

Plant the seed and water it from time-to-time with grace; even if that time takes a decade it will be worth it when you get to rejoice.
